Zero had a massive showing again this year, with a central spot on the show floor at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, CA. As press entered the show we were greeted by a pair of ladies handing us Zero brochures and reminding us not to miss their presentation.

Unlike the Laguna Seca round, all bikes that started were able to complete this race. Shane Turpin was fastest from start to finish, leading on every lap.

Coming up in third place was Kenyon Kluge, with a gap that started at about 45 seconds after the first lap and grew with each lap until he finished 2 minutes 11 seconds behind leader Shane Turpin.
